Milkys Diner, in the courtyard off Moore Street in Civic, is perfectly placed for a quick commuter breakfast or an indulgent lunch. First impressions of a traditional old school American diner are not far from the truth, with the stools, the bar top and the menu offering a slice of American pop culture in Canberra, open from 7.30am to 3.30pm, weekdays.
The small but strong menu has been handpicked for the most popular items Americans sink their teeth into, with prices ranging from just $4.80 to a still-affordable $15.00 – in fact, the majority of dishes will only cost you the coins in your pocket. Forget the mass-marketed cookie-cutter cuisine of the Yankee fast food giants – Milkys offers a slice of the real America, at a price that can’t be beat.
Milkys Diner is an experience. Step into an eatery that vibes with retro music and pumps out too-cool food. Sit at the bar and take in a shake, order a hotdog and pile on the cheese sauce, or grab a bagel for a breakfast on the run – it’s all part of the Milkys way of life, a philosophy that makes food fun.
Milkys is classic dining at an affordable price. Oh, and try the fries with gravy and cheese sauce. You’ll never hit the drive thru again.
